Player of the season and 2 year contract with Sale
By darren mayor
7 June 2013
These are two of the honours and rewards bestowed on two of our COBRA Youth boys.
This year we have seen the succes of many years of hard work by the members and players of COBRA RFC and we have been delighted with the rewards of now being the only Mid Wales club playing 1st division rugby in the North Wales League. It is always good to celebrate succes and although the Youth team narrowly missed out on honours this year some of our key players have been recognised by their hard work. Pictured are Toby Twigg, Rhodri Mayor and Huw Worthington. All three have been succesfull in their own right this year for RGC and the Llandrillo College Team. Toby Captained the College team to two finals this year and they were succesful in the National college Cup.He is now a senior squad member of the RGC and we wish him all the best for next year. Not bad for a 17 year old!! Huw was awarded the player of the season for the U18's squad at a recent RGC awards night but has also broken succesfully into the senior squad this year and we hope he will be a regular in the team as they push for honours next year in the Welsh Championship. Rhodri (also pictured below) was honored with the captains arm band for the RGC U18's team during their season before Christmas but injury has limited his appearances for the rest of the year. However we are pleased to announce that Sale RFC expressed an interest in him and he has signed an initial 2 year contract with the club. For those who don't know, Sale RFC are very closely linked to Sale Sharks who will once again be competing in the English Premiership next year. Both Sale and the Sharks share all the training facilities at Carrington, as well as some coaching and back room staff (Physio's, conditioning coaches, video analysis etc.). It is an exciting opportunity for Rhodri to develop his rugby at the Manchester based club as success on the pitch with Sale could result in opportunities in the academy at the Sharks as well as with the senior teams. I am sure you will join me in wishing all three boys every success in their future rugby careers wherever that may lead them.
